Ben Carson: Pompeii Victims Should Have Outrun Lava - facepalm worthy report by Borowitz

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Citizens of the Roman town of Pompeii who were victims of Mt. Vesuvius’s eruption in 79 A.D. could have survived if they had “just outrun the lava,” the neurosurgeon Ben Carson told Fox News on Wednesday.

“Most of the plaster casts we have of Pompeii victims show them basically just lying down and whatnot,” he said. “If I had been in Pompeii and I heard Mt. Vesuvius erupting, you can bet I would have made a run for it.”

He said another option open to residents of Pompeii would have been “to fight the volcano.”
“Archeologists estimate that the population of Pompeii was about eleven thousand,” he said. “You can’t tell me that if eleven thousand people put their minds to it they couldn’t beat one volcano.”

Carson said he would spend the next week on the campaign trail dispensing helpful tips about how people can defeat earthquakes, tsunamis, and giant asteroids.

WWSMD = What would Solly Mack do?

Poured the last of my bubble bath into the tub, rinsed the glass container, and the bubbles left in it were so pretty I had to channel what Solly would do. Naturally it's not quite as good - but what I'm really saying is she is that she is an inspiration to us.

Brava Obama. I know he will never revert to being mealy mouthed about it.
He has had it!

May I post a cartoon about food and photography?

Do any of us recognize ourselves in this cartoon? I know I do.

If I ever win a contest again, I may chose as the theme a photo of food that was placed in front of us.
I must admit I have a few in my files.
